Reversible tulip cushion
I love tulips and I liked the idea of making something with a tulip design where the shape is made of three overlapping teardrop shapes - this works particularly well when they are translucent. When I won these gorgeous japanese fabrics from Saints and Pinners blog I decided to make this cushion as they sort of reminded me of origami papers you might make lilies (or tulips) from and the colours complemented each other so well.

Pin three of the teardrops together and applique the joins together on the right side.
Repeat for the other three teardrops. Overlapping the teardrops differently will make each side look different.
Remove any pins that will be concealed when the two tulip pieces are pinned back to back. Rip out as much of the tracing paper as possible without damaging the fabric.
